I bought three months ago a new HDDrive (WDigital 20,5 GB).I week ago it started to behave strange (I mean noisy, sticking, couple of bad clusters e.t.c). The representative here is willing to replace it with a new one, but I want to loose nothing of the programs, data and the structure and the configuration of W98 I achived last three months (I don't want even to think of reinstalling all the stuff I have). I own a capable CD-R drive. Is there a way to use it to obtain an "absolutely exact" copy of the contents of my HDD -which is still working and so to "paste" these on the new replaced HDD? Please keep in mind that when the new HDD will come I'll have nothing but a W98 bootable 3,5 diskette - I mean I don't want to reinstall even W98 again.
